30 Jun THE TOUR IS BACK
We’re super pumped to announce that on 14-16 October 2022, the Tour de Bintan will return to beautiful Bintan. After a two-year hiatus, finally, we are thrilled to bring back racing to the magnificent island.
Being able to organise the Tour again, feels for us very much like the finish of a Gran Fondo. It require(s) grit, and determination. Thank you for your patience and hanging in there through this journey. Now you can go back to training to reach your Gran Fondo finish line.
The excitement and anticipation couldn’t be higher, the joy of racing side by side with fellow cyclists will be enthralling. It is only fitting that this elation coincides with the 10-year anniversary celebration of the Tour de Bintan.
New for its 10th edition, the women’s wave will start behind the men. The women will be flagged off last, so men don’t interfere in the peloton and women can get a fair race. This new addition is timely mannered with the launch of the “Tour de Femmes” in the Tour de France this year. The rise of womens cycling is exciting to watch.
In the tradition of the Tour, all abilities and fitness levels are welcome with different distances available from the 55km Discovery to the 140km Classic. The routes take cyclists along stunning coastal roads, past dense lush green forests and cheerful villagers. Come for one night or stay for the long weekend, located right on Singapore’s doorstep, Bintan, Indonesia, is just a short ferry ride away.
Registration will open shortly. 2020 registered participants will be contacted with entry options.
We look forward to seeing you in Bintan in October!
